Sigrún Gyða (b. 1993, Reykjavík) is a filmmaker, classical singer, composer and visual artist. Her practice seeks to capture the performative self as a mythical mode to reflect on femininity, body labor and time. Sigrún’s work focuses on different social groups, cultures and differentiation. Sigrún lives and works in Reykjavík and Amsterdam where she graduated with a MA in fine art and design 2021. HLAUPA- Ég er beast í gymminu (translated: RUNNING- I’m a beast in the gym) is a continuation from her graduation performance from Sandberg Instituut. The performance was an opera that has now evolved into an intractable soundscape.
